Anti-Francisella tularensis [11B7] Antibody

This IgG1 kappa mouse monoclonal antibody [11B7] is reactive against the capsular polysaccharide of F. tularensis.

Highlights:

  • Generated against membranes prepared from Francisella tularensis strain SchuS4
  • Recommended for Western Blot, ELISA, and Immunofluorescence applications

Francisella tularensis is a small pathogenic gram-negative, nonmotile, aerobic bacteria and the causative agent of tularemia. Also known as "rabbit fever" the highly contagious bacteria can be spread from animals to humans, through a vector such as fleas or mosquitoes. F. tularensis has been considered to be encapsulated for over 40 years based on the rough colony phenotype and presence of polysachharides structures on the organism. Francisella tularensis is classified as a Category A biological agent and symptoms include fever, headache and body aches.
